As we have for the past 2 years, Microsoft is once again proud to announce our sponsorship of the 2009-2010 AVIOS Speech Application Programming Contest. Last year, winners of the contest received some pretty cool prizes from Microsoft, like copies of Visual Studio Professional, XBOX 360s, and Zunes... That's in addition to being flown out to San Diego for the Awards Ceremony at the Voice Search 2009 Conference. This year, Microsoft's offering similar prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize.
